Paul Wernick and His Wife, Rita Professional Feud

In mid-2019, when Columbia Pictures set to release their movie “Zombieland” on October 2, 2019, the exact date Disney/Pixar also placed to release “Toy Story 2,” which was co-written by Paul’s wife.

At other times this would be the clash of the two movies competing for attention at the box office, but in this case, it was a clash of the films by husband and wife. This clash jokingly created minor feuds inside the family where their son Cayson supported his dad, saying, ”I am supporting dad since he gets residual.”
